Former Elite striker Christopher Reeves has transferred to the 2020 Charity Shield winners Latinos Football Club. Reeves, who tide for top scorer alongside Scholars’ Kimani Finn in the 2019-2020 Cayman Islands Football Association League, told Cay 03 Sports, the move wasn’t an easy decision.
“It was kind of tough leaving my old team but I had to look for something different,” said Reeves. Elite men’s team hasn’t seen silverware since winning the CIFA FA Cup in 2014 and that doesn’t sit well with the Honduras born striker who says, he has given the team everything when it comes to his performance on the field.
“I like winning games, I don’t like losing because I give 100% in every game that I play,” said Reeves. “Three years ago they (Latinos) asked if I wanted to play with them, but I wasn’t sure because at the time they weren’t so professional but now I see that Latinos are serious and that’s why I made my decision to switch teams.”
Elite placed 3rd in the 2019-2020 league while Latinos placed 5th. However each time the two teams collided in the season, Elite couldn’t find the winning recipe for Latinos. The first encounter ended in a 1-1 draw between the two during the third round of the league.
The two teams would then clash in the semi-finals of the CIFA Presidents Cup with the game ending 2-1 in favour of Latinos. However the single goal that came from Elite in that game was scored by Reeves.
Latinos FC has been on a mission to fill their trophy case as of late; defeating Bodden Town FC to win the Presidents Cup, then Scholars International to win the Charity Shield and Reeves says his new team will be looking to add more titles to their resume in the next season.
“We are coming for everything,” said Reeves. “We’re coming for the league, we’re coming for the Presidents Cup, the FA Cup, everything.”
